The initial MIAM consultation was set up quickly and proved very useful. Elisabet was focussed, empathic, professional, and as helpful as possible given my situation.
She undertook the required follow-up actions efficiently, reporting back to me on progress.
Ultimately, the process was unable to continue because my ex-partner declined the opportunity to participate. Based on my experience, I would have no hesitation in recommending Elisabet. Mr ML, Suffolk - 2018

The patient methodical framework within which our discussions were undertaken rubs off eventually on all parties. It encourages a constructive approach to conflict resolution.Anonymous - 2016
Putting it simply, I have achieved a lot of ‘closure’ and I have moved forward. My path is now clear to me and for the first time in many, many years, I feel that I am valued, have a purpose, my confidence has come back and I actually like who I am.
For that, I am extremely grateful and I consider this to be one of the most positive outcomes from the session.
Please pass on my gratitude to Stephen and Jan. Darren, Dubai - 2014
Whilst going through a difficult divorce; juggling the emotional fall out of the relationship breaking down, the challenges of re-locating and ever increasing legal bills, it was suggested that my now ex-husband and I sought mediation.
My ex-husband and I were living in different parts of the country, however, Start Mediation were able to accommodate us by allowing us to have our sessions on-line. This was instrumental in us being able to move the divorce procedure (Consent Order) forward.
Stephen is very easy to talk with and has a wealth of experience and valuable insight into the divorce process. I can hand on heart say that we would not have reached resolution without Stephen’s help and I heartily recommend Stephen as a professional: fair, accessible, productive and indisputably patient mediator.Mrs MS, Channel Islands - 2018
I massively appreciate the advice you gave me during our meeting. (I have been) downloading, printing and filling out the forms you told me that I needed, and … am happy that we (KD & spouse) have filled in all the forms, and we have decided that we will proceed from here alone, and book the court. Thanks again Stephen. I have and will continue to recommend your services!KD, Hants, March 2017.
It felt a very supportive atmosphere, particularly the first joint meeting, which could have been a very volatile meeting, Stephen had a very calming manner, rather like pouring oil over a potentially flammable situation!Anonymous, Suffolk - 2016
I believe this mediation process to have been invaluable and I’m indebted to the friendly professionalism of both mediators.Anonymous - 2016
It diffused an awful situation. Communication had broken down completely. It has definitely (our) improved communication.Anonymous - 2016
